MountainView Hospital announces that John Nunes, MD, FACOG, will be the new Chief Medical Officer for the organization, effective May 1.

Dr. Nunes is a Board Certified obstetrician and gynecologist with 35 years of clinical experience, ranging from private group practice to an employed physician model, hospitalist duties and hospital administrative leadership.  As director of women’s services for Valleycare Medical Center in California, he founded the first laborist program ever to be insured by the hospital’s malpractice carrier.  His clinical interests include minimally invasive pelvic surgery and the management of high-risk pregnancies.

As an undergraduate alumnus of Santa Clara University and a graduate of Georgetown School of Medicine, he subsequently completed his residency at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, and is a 10 year active duty veteran of the United States Air Force.

Currently, he is a faculty member and an advanced Master Trainer at the National Implementation for TeamSTEPPS with the AHA.  Physician engagement and patient safety are topics on which he lectures nationally and acts as a consultant to the Oregon Medical Board.  Administratively, he has served as Chief Medical Officer of the St. Charles Medical Group, and Chief Quality and Safety Officer for the St. Charles Health System, a multi-hospital system in central Oregon.  His strong interest in clinical teaching and surgical mentoring allow him to impart a long and diverse body of experience across his many leadership roles.

“We are pleased that Dr. Nunes will be joining MountainView Hospital this spring to help collaboratively lead our medical staff and continue to build on their great work in quality patient care,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to Dr. Nunes’ leadership and clinical expertise to help continue to move MountainView forward for our community.”
